Careless use or misuse can result in unnecessary
accidents. Be alert to hazards of tractor operation.
Understand causes of accidents and take every
precaution to avoid them. Most common accidents are
caused from:
TS276
• Put the gear lever in Park position. Leaving
transmission in gear with engine stopped will NOT
prevent the tractor from moving.
• Be sure everyone is clear of tractor and attached
equipment before starting engine.
• Never try to get on or off a moving tractor.
• When tractor is left unattended, put the gear lever in
Park position , stop the engine , remove the key, lower
implements to the ground.

Safety
Use Caution on Hillsides
Driving forward out of a ditch or mired condition or up a
steep slope could cause tractor to tip over rearward. Back
out of these situations if possible.
TS205
Never drive near the edge of a gully or steep
embankment -- it might cave in.
–UN–23AUG88
Avoid holes, ditches, and obstructions which cause the
tractor to tip, especially on hillsides. Avoid sharp, uphill
turns.
Danger of overturn increases greatly with narrow tread
setting, at high speed.
Hitch towed loads only to drawbar. When using a chain,
take up the slack slowly.
AG,OUO6035,65 –19–17MAY00–1/1
When driving on icy, wet or oily surfaces, reduce speed
and be sure tractor is properly ballasted (specially front
tyres)to avoid skidding and loss of steering control.
LV4042
Shift to a low gear before descending a steep hill to
improve your control of the tractor with little or no braking.
Use engine braking to reduce speed before applying
tractor brakes. Run-away tractors often tip over. Never
coast downhill.
–UN–09JUL99
Shift to Low Gear on Hills
Additional ballast may be needed for transporting heavy
hitch mounted implements. When implement is raised,
drive slowly over rough ground, regardless of how much
ballast is used.

Take care when pulling loads or using heavy equipment:
• Use only approved drawbar hitch points.
• Limit loads to those you can safely control.
• Use counterweights or wheel weights when suggested
in this operator’s manual.
TS205
Slow down before you make a sharp turn.
–UN–23AUG88
Stay alert for holes, rocks, and roots in the terrain, and
other hidden hazards. Keep away from drop-offs.
Reduce speed and exercise extreme caution on slopes
and in sharp turns to prevent tipping or loss of control. Be
especially cautious when changing direction on slopes.
Do not stop or start suddenly when going uphill or
downhill.
If machine stops going up hill:
• STOP the PTO.
• Back down slowly.

Safety
Back your tractor out if it gets mired down in mud. Unhitch
any towed implements. Dig mud from behind the rear
wheels. Place boards behind the wheels to provide a solid
base and try to back out slowly. If necessary, dig mud
from the front of all wheels and drive slowly ahead.
TS1645
Attempting to free a mired machine can involve safety
hazards such as the mired tractor tipping rearward, the
towing tractor overturning, and the tow chain or tow bar (a
cable is not recommended) failing and recoiling from its
stretched condition.
–UN–15SEP95
Freeing a Mired Machine
TS263
Always hitch to the drawbar of the towing unit. Do not
hitch to the front pushbar attachment point. Before
moving, clear the area of people. Apply power smoothly to
take up the slack: a sudden pull could snap any towing
device causing it to whip or recoil dangerously.
–UN–23AUG88
If necessary to tow with another unit, use a tow bar or a
long chain (a cable is not recommended). Inspect the
chain for flaws. Make sure all parts of towing devices are
of adequate size and strong enough to handle the load.

tow.
–UN–22APR94
A disabled tractor is best transported on a flatbed carrier.
Use chains to secure the tractor to the carrier.
MX,SAIP,LA1 –19–29JUL94–1/1
Observe these recommended maximum road speeds, or
local speed limits which may be lower:
• If towed equipment does not have brakes, do not travel
more than 32 km/h (20 mph) and do not tow loads more
than 1.5 times the tractor weight.
• If towed equipment has brakes, do not travel more than
40 km/h (25 mph) and do not tow loads more than 4.5
times the tractor weight.
TS216
Stopping distance increases with speed and weight of
towed loads, and on slopes. Towed loads with or without
brakes that are too heavy for the tractor or are towed too
fast can cause loss of control. Consider the total weight of
the equipment and its load.
–UN–23AUG88
Tow Loads Safely
Ensure the load does not exceed the recommended
weight ratio. Add ballast to recommended maximum for

Rockshaft and 3-Point Hitch
Using Draft Control
The rockshaft is equipped with variable draft control
system.
–UN–28AUG03
Use draft load sensing when:
PY1472
• Operating with a fully mounted implement in hill and
swale terrain. The implement will raise and lower to
follow the ground contours while maintaining a nearly
constant depth.
• Operating in varying soil conditions. The implement is
raised slightly to get through tough spots so you do not
have to shift to a lower gear.
Draft control lever (B) controls amount of load required
before hitch responds. With lever placed fully forward to
the position marked “off” (C), there is no draft sensing.
Placing the lever toward the rear position reduces the
amount of draft load required to override the position
setting set by the position control lever (A) and raise the
rockshaft.
Draft sensitivity ranges can be changed by repositioning
the center link. (See Positioning Center Link in this section
for additional information.)
M47169
• Initially place position control lever (A) in its fully
rearward position and the draft control lever (B) in the
fully forward (least draft) position.
• With tractor moving, push position control lever (A)
forward to set implement operating depth. Set position
control lever stop (D) so control lever can be brought
back to the same position. The operating depth set-up
will prevent the rockshaft from lowering all the way
when the tractor begins to slip. Then pull draft sensing
lever (B) rearward until desired draft sensing sensitivity
is obtained.
• The position control lever (A) can also be raised slightly
to override the draft control setting to help get through
slippery spots without getting stuck.
• The position control lever (A) can be moved fully
rearward to raise the hitch at the end of the field.

–UN–14JUL04
Standard position is (C).
• Excessive hitch activity or hunting occurs in draft control
operation.
• The rear of the implement raises too much when lifted.
The implement weight which can be lifted is reduced
slightly with the center link attachment in the lower
holes.
• The draft control lever range is too small.

Move the center link attachment to holes (B) if:
A—Upper Hole
B—Middle Hole
C—Lower Hole
Move the center link attachment to holes (C) if:
• The hitch seems unresponsive in draft control operation
and allows the engine speed to drop too far before
raising the rockshaft.
• The rear of the implement droops and drags the ground
as the implement is lifted.
Upper hole (A) eliminates nearly all draft sensing.

Planning for Maximum Productivity
Proper ballasting is an important factor in tractor
performance. maximum productivity can be achieved
only if tractor weight is appropriate for the job.
FMO-Machinery Management includes information on
tractor and implement matching and increasing
productivity. .
John Deere FMO (Fundamentals of Machine
Operations) Tractors, discusses methods of
determining correct tractor weight and ballast selection.
Your John Deere dealer can assist you with
information on these subjects.
PY80265,05I0163 –19–12SEP05–1/1
Selecting Ballast Carefully
Match amount of ballast needed for each job. What is
right for one job may be wrong for another job. Ballast
for traction and stability.
Factors determining amount of ballast:
•
•
•
•
•
Soil surface-loose or firm.
Type of implement-integral/semi-integral or towed.
Travel speed-slow or fast.
Tractor power output-partial or full load.
Tyres-single, oversize, or dual.
PY80265,05I0164 –19–12SEP05–1/1
Matching Ballast to Load Work
Too Little Ballast
Use no more ballast than necessary, and remove
ballast when it is no longer needed.
Rather than weighing tractor down to pull heavy loads,
try to reduce load. Pulling a lighter load at a higher
speed is more economical and more efficient.
The best way to check for correct ballast is to measure
amount of travel reduction (% slip) of the drive wheels.
Under normal field conditions, travel reduction should
be 10—15 percent.
Too Much Ballast
1.
Excessive wheel slip
1.
Increased load
2.
Power loss due to
churning soil
2.
Power loss due to
carrying extra weight
3.
tyre wear
3.
tyre strain
4.
Fuel waste
4.
Soil compaction
5.
Lower productivity
5.
Fuel waste
6.
Lower productivity
Add more weight to drive wheels if slip is excessive. If
there is less than 10 percent slip, weight should be
removed.

Measuring Wheel Slip—Manually

observed (a chalk mark is recommended).
4. With implement raised return in the opposite direction.
At the second mark on the ground (C) remark the tyre
(D).
PY5516
3. Mark the ground again where the tyre mark (A)
completes 10 full revolutions (C).
–UN–17FEB06
2. With tractor working and implement lowered, mark a
starting point (B) on the ground at the place where the
tyre mark (A) meets the ground.
5. While driving the tractor along the same path
(implement raised), count the tyre revolutions required
to reach the starting point (B).
6. Use the return tyre revolutions count and “Wheel
Slippage Chart” to determine slippage. 10—15 percent
is ideal.
7. Adjust ballast or load to give correct slippage.

wheel slip drops below 10 percent.

Service Tyres Safely
Explosive separation of at tyre and rim parts can cause
serious injury or death.
Do not attempt to mount a tyre unless you have the
proper equipment and experience to perform the job.
Always maintain the correct tyre pressure. Do not inflate
the tyres above the recommended pressure. Never weld
or heat a wheel and tyre assembly. The heat can cause
an increase in air pressure resulting in a tyre explosion.
Welding can structurally weaken or deform the wheel.
TS211
Check wheels for low pressure, cuts, bubbles, damaged
rims or missing lug bolts and nuts.
–UN–23AUG88
When inflating tyres, use a clip-on chuck and extension
hose long enough to allow you to stand to one side and
NOT in front of or over the tyre assembly. Use a safety
cage if available.
PY80265,05I0175 –19–12SEP05–1/1
Check Implement-to-Tyre Clearance
M47177
When large diameter rear tyres are
installed on a tractor with a 3-Point
Hitch, a quick coupler or similar device
may be required to provide adequate
implement-to-tyre clearance.
–UN–31JAN92
IMPORTANT: Check for adequate clearance (A)
between outside diameter of the tyre
and implement with hitch in raised
position.

Check Tyre Inflation Pressure
Check tyres daily for damage or noticeably low
pressure.
At least every 100 hours of operation, check inflation
pressure with a gauge. Use an accurate gauge having
10 kPa (0.1 bar) (1 psi) graduations.
If tyres contain liquid ballast, use a special air-water
gauge and measure with valve stem at bottom.
NOTE: When furrow plowing or during hillside
operation, tyre pressure can be increased 28
kPa (0.28 bar) (4 psi) ABOVE maximum to
prevent tyre wrinkling or buckling.
IMPORTANT: Always check inflation pressure with
an accurate tyre gauge to prevent
over-inflation. Over-inflation reduces
performance and increases strain of
both tyre and rim.
2. Operation of tyres at the inflation pressures listed
on chart will result in optimum tractive performance
of the tyre/vehicle system. Correctly inflated radial
tyres will show a large deflection of the sidewall or
“cheeks”. This is normal and will not hurt the tyre if
the inflation pressure is maintained.
3. Inflation pressures less than 80 kPa (12 psi) should
be monitored regularly because of the increased
risk of low pressure air leaks (especially due to
leaking valve cores).
4. Tractors operating on steep side slopes should
increase inflation pressures 28 kPa (4 psi) above
the values listed to compensate for lateral weight
transfer.
NOTE: Following inflation information applies to both
front and rear tyres and Tyre Inflation Pressure
Chart.
5. Tyres run as singles in high traction conditions
sometimes experience bead slip if the bead was not
fully seated or if too much lubricant was used to
mount the tyre. Increasing the inflation pressure will
compensate for this condition but will not cause
reduced traction. Consult your tyre dealer if this
problem occurs.
1. All inflation pressures are calculated for 29 km/h
(18 mph) travel speeds for both diagonal (bias) ply
and radial ply tyres.
6. If higher load capacities are needed, contact your
John Deere dealer for tyre manufacturers load and
inflation table information.

Lubricant Storage
Your equipment can operate at top efficiency only
when clean lubricants are used.
Make certain that all containers are properly marked to
identify their contents.
Use clean containers to handle all lubricants.
Properly dispose of all old containers and any residual
lubricant they may contain.
Whenever possible, store lubricants and containers in
an area protected from dust, moisture, and other
contamination. Store containers on their side to avoid
water and dirt accumulation.

Fuels, Lubricants and Coolant
Diesel Engine Coolant
The engine cooling system is filled to provide
year-round protection against corrosion and cylinder
liner pitting, and winter freeze protection to -37°C
(-34°F). If protection at lower temperatures is required,
consult your John Deere dealer for recommendations.
John Deere COOL-GARD Prediluted Coolant is
preferred for service.
John Deere COOL-GARD Prediluted Coolant is
available in a concentration of either 50% ethylene
glycol or 55% propylene glycol.
Additional recommended coolants
The following engine coolant is also recommended:
• John Deere COOL-GARD Coolant Concentrate in a
40% to 60% mixture of concentrate with quality
water.
John Deere COOL-GARD coolants do not require use
of supplemental coolant additives, except for periodic
replenishment of additives during the drain interval.
Other fully formulated coolants
Other fully formulated low silicate ethylene or
propylene glycol base coolants for heavy-duty engines
may be used if they meet one of the following
specifications:
• ASTM D6210 prediluted (50%) coolant
• ASTM D6210 coolant concentrate in a 40% to 60%
mixture of concentrate with quality water
Coolants meeting ASTM D6210 do not require use of
supplemental coolant additives, except for periodic
replenishment of additives during the drain interval.
Other low silicate ethylene glycol base coolants for
heavy-duty engines may also be used if they meet one
of the following specifications:
• ASTM D4985 ethylene glycol base prediluted (50%)
coolant
• ASTM D4985 ethylene glycol base coolant
concentrate in a 40% to 60% mixture of concentrate
with quality water
Coolants meeting ASTM D4985 require an initial
charge of supplemental coolant additives, formulated
for protection of heavy duty diesel engines against
corrosion and cylinder liner erosion and pitting. They
also require periodic replenishment of additives during
the drain interval.
Other coolants
It is possible that neither John Deere COOL-GARD nor
coolants meeting one of the coolant standards listed
above is available in the geographical area where
service is performed. If these coolants are unavailable,
use a coolant concentrate or prediluted coolant with a
quality additive package that provides cylinder liner
cavitation protection and protects the cooling system
metals (cast iron, aluminum alloys, and copper alloys
such as brass) from corrosion.
The additive package must be part of one of the
following coolant mixtures:
• ethylene glycol or propylene glycol base prediluted
(40% to 60%) coolant
• ethylene glycol or propylene glycol base coolant
concentrate in a 40% to 60% mixture of concentrate
with quality water

"Lubricated" means coated with a lubricant such as engine oil, or fasteners with phosphate and oil coatings.
b
"Dry" means plain or zinc plated without any lubrication.
DO NOT use these values if a different torque value or tightening
procedure is given for a specific application. Torque values listed are
for general use only. Check tightness of fasteners periodically.
Make sure fastener threads are clean and that you properly start
thread engagement. This will prevent them from failing when
tightening.
Shear bolts are designed to fail under predetermined loads. Always
replace shear bolts with identical property class.
Tighten plastic insert or crimped steel-type lock nuts to approximately
50 percent of the dry torque shown in the chart, applied to the nut,
not to the bolt head. Tighten toothed or serrated-type lock nuts to the
full torque value.
Fasteners should be replaced with the same or higher property class.
If higher property class fasteners are used, these should only be
tightened to the strength of the original.
